Mission Statement

The National Lighthouse Museum’s purpose is to educate and preserve the maritime heritage of lighthouses and lightships across the globe and their related history for generations to come.

Description

The National Lighthouse Museum is located on the grounds of the former U.S. Lighthouse Service "Super" Depot on the North Shore of Staten Island. The interior of our Educational Resource Center in Building 11 and many of our initial exhibits were designed by the award-winning integrated design firm, Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design (LHSA+DP).

The museum and gift shop is open to visitors Wednesday - Sunday, 11am-4pm. Closed Mondays and all legal holidays.

Visitors come to see:

* Building 11 and current exhibits

* Exterior views of Building 10 and other historic buildings on the site

* Gifts and souvenirs for purchase in our gift shop

* Scenic views of New York Harbor from Pier 1

Our current presence in Building11 on the Promenade anticipates future expansion into Building 10 of the original U.S. Light House General Depot. We are looking forward settling into our role as the pre-eminent voice for lighthouses around the world!
